Prince Harry ‘worried sick’ about Kate and ‘kicking himself’ over ‘hurt he’s caused’

Kate announced her diagnosis last month

| Updated:

In Prince Harry news, the Duke of Sussex could reportedly be in a “painful place” following his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis.

Recent reports claimed that Harry is very concerned about Kate.

The Princess of Wales announced her diagnosis last month as she broke her silence following her abdominal surgery back in January.

Prince Harry news

According to a royal commentator, Harry may be feeling regret over his comments about Kate in his memoir, Spare.

Tessa Dunlop told US Weekly: “When you do discover that your sister-in-law has cancer and you’ve written stuff that can’t be retracted, that’s quite a painful place to be in. I’m not saying it isn’t.”

She added: “They deliberately criticise the monarchy [and then offer] themselves as an alternative to monarchy. So then when the monarchy is in trouble, we do kind of make a comparison. Can Harry and Meghan really hold themselves off as the caring example now?”

Recent reports claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex only found out about Kate’s cancer diagnosis at the same time as the rest of the nation.

The couple released a statement at the time, wishing the Princess of Wales “health and healing” in “privacy and peace”.

However, now, according to Closer magazine, Harry in particular has been “wracked by guilt” over the hurt he’s caused Kate since leaving life as a working royal.

“Kate’s like a sister to him. They had such a close relationship for so many years. He misses her terribly. They’ve had their differences lately, but this news has put it all in perspective for Harry. He’s realised how trivial most of the problems were and he’s determined to patch things up,” a source claimed.

The source continued.

“Harry’s been kicking himself, questioning everything that’s been said, publically and privately, and worrying about the hurt he’s caused,” they then said.

“He feels awful and is worried sick about his sister-in-law. He wishes there was more he could do,” they then added.

The source then went on to say that Harry feels “pretty helpless” at the moment. He is also reportedly “doing his best” not to let the guilt “overwhelm him”.

The source then claimed that Harry even told Meghan things had gone “too far”.

William and Kate offer Harry and Meghan an olive branch

In other royal news, it has been reported that William and Kate have invited Harry and Meghan and their young family to come and visit.

“William and Kate have suggested that Meghan and Harry bring their children and that the two couples and their families try to make up, but the suggestion is not leading anywhere so far,” royal author Tom Quinn told The Mirror.

However, he then said: “There is no way Meghan would bring the children to the UK.”

Quinn then went on to claim that Harry was a big fan of the Royal Family’s Easter tradition. However, he will be “upset” that his children missed the traditional Easter egg hunt that takes place.

“Of course, it would’ve given Archie and Lilibet a chance to get to know GeorgeCharlotte and Louis. The family rift is going to prevent this and Harry will feel it keenly,” he then said.
